Nathan Black, a sophomore student at East Tennessee State University & a Pike Brother in the Pi Kappa Alpha, was seriously injured in a car accident on the Kingsport Highway on December 16, 2012. Nathan was thrown out of the vehicle 150 feet, landing on his head. He is presently at Shepherds Rehabilitation Center in Atlanta. Nathan has Traumatic Brain Injury and Cognitive Disorder, Ect. 

His family really needs our help. His mother hasn't left his side and is in Atlanta with him. His father is in Greeneville Tenn with Nathans younger brother who is a high school student. There was no medical insurance on Nathan and the driver of the car had no insurance. 

Our family needs your financial help as well as our prayers. 
ALL DONATIONS WILL GO TO JENNIE BLACK (Nathans Mother) to help Nathan's family cover the costs of his medical and rehabilitation expenses. 

Thank You & God Bless You

Nathan is a strong boy & has come such a long way already. We are so proud of him and love him so much. 

Please feel free to share this page, Thank You.

. Update on Nathan Watchmen Black Rehab at the Shepherd Center as of today, Dr.Dennison changed his inpatient projected discharge date from 2/14/2013 to 1/30/2013. Nathan will be staying with me at the apt where I've been staying since I got here until the end of March beginning of April, next to the Shepherd Center into a outpatient rehab setting, I will be bring him to and from
Shepherd Pathways
1942 Clairmont Rd
Decatur, GA
This is where he will have extensive Therapies to learn independents and every day living with assists and supervision at all times. Dr. Dennison wanted to change his medicine (Amantidine) that helps with neuro stimulate, and calms the brain to a different medication because Nathan seems to be making little to no progress in his memory functions and cognitive disorder but it had very bad side effects of seizures so I didn't want to change it at this time, I want to wait in see how Nathan does in 2 months then go from there, I'm not very comfortable with putting him on that medication right now. Nathan is still in the confused state of mind and Dr. Dennison is giving him 2 months from when the accident happen to come out of this Cognitive Disorder because if he doesn't Nathan will likely stay in this state of mind forever and he will never be able to be on his own, he will always need assists for the rest of his life. and needing supervision 24/7 to keep him safe and he will not be able to return to college for another 2 years if at all :( and more then likely it's looking more dim for him to return to Pre med and have to change his major. I can tell you that out family has been turned upside down forever and I wish I could take this all away from my son and wish this never happen to him. I just pray that he over achieve's the Doctors expectations and proves everyone wrong :) where he will be 100% himself again :) God and Nathan Watchmen Black amazing brain only knows this answer to what his future holds. My heart is so heavy right now just to think I can't fix this for him at all :(( it's all up to him and the man up stairs. Please everyone keep praying for him that he will recovery from this Traumatic Brain Injury and all of his cognitive disorder subsides.
Nathan will be tested for 3 hours with the Neuropsych on Monday to see where he stands in the Domains of cognition disorder and Post Traumatic stress disorder Amnesia.
